      Individual: The Genealogy of the Descendants o
      f John Clough of Salisbury, Mass. Volume I The Origin o
      f the Clough Clan Page 13 When the legions of the Roman E
      mpire swept into the region of the Caucasus Mountains, th
      e tribesof Celts and later the Teutons fled north-ward thr
      ough Europe until the barrier of the Atlantic Ocean stoppe
      d their wanderings. During those many centuries a restles
      s spirit possessed these homeless tribes and this becam
      e a dominant element in their characteristics. The love o
      f freedom that impelled theminto the northern forests ha
      s persisted through thousands of years. In the ravines o
      f Brittany the Lords of Rohan claimed their domain and erec
      ted their castle, said by historians to have been the proge
      nitors of the Clough Clan. This genealogical record of th
      e Family of John Clough demonstrates the independent, restl
      ess traits of that Englishman who preferred exile from hi
      s native home to subordination to a government that demande
      d a compromise with his religious convictions and prevente
      d him from establishing his family upon the soil of England
      . Page 14 Based upon the highest English authority, it i
      s safe to presume that among the craggy ravines of the coas
      t of Brittany inFrance the progenitors of our family wer
      e so distinctly established that either they assumed the na
      me or their neighbors called them by their place of residen
      ce: - The Ravine Men - Cloughs. Among the Celtic tribes, no
      t only in Brittany, also in all the northern countries of E
      urope and in Britain, a ravine was called a clough, a wor
      d that was derived from an ancient verb that was translated
      , "to split.". In "The History of the Commoners" by John Bu
      rke, astatement is given on the authority of Dr. Johnson a
      nd other lexicographers,"This family-Clough-its name and a
      rms deduce from the Lords of Rohan in the dukedom." Rohan w
      as a small viscounty, later erected into a duchy, in Britta
      ny or Bretagne in France when William, The Norman, invade
      d that province about 1050 A.D. This was the ancient Celti
      c province that Julius Caesar described in his Commentaries
      . Standing upon the crags of its coast, Caesar caught sigh
      t of the shining white cliffs across the channel and foun
      d a new territory to conquer in Britain. From John Burke'
      s writings one may learn that the Lords of Rohan were desce
      ndants of the ancient kings and princes of Bretagne, title
      s that, judged by the modern point of view, seem more or le
      ss legendary. Yet in those long ago days, only the warrior
      s were chosen Lords and Kings who achieved and then retaine
      d their positions of power by their deeds of valor and cour
      age. Brittany is described as a rugged region, traversed b
      y beautiful valleys and romantic glens where swift rivers f
      low into the sea. Even in 1580, a Duke of Rohan was born i
      n Castle Blain who was a famous man of letters and an offic
      er in the religious wars of that century. Blain is a city s
      ituated in the Vilaine Valley not far distant from the seap
      ort of St. Nazaire. In this vicinity the Cloughs received t
      heir name and arms. During the reignof William, The Norman
      , the inhabitants of this duchy obeyed the Conqueror, and t
      he Lords with their clansmen joined his armies in his conqu
      est of Britain in 1066. Gradually the Norman henchmen wer
      e assigned areas among the Cheviot Hills along the norther
      n border of England between the estates of the Saxon nobili
      ty where they acted as guards to enforce the regulations o
      f William, The Conqueror. Without doubt among these Norma
      n watchmen there were Cloughs, men who loved the highland
      s and who settled among them. The name survives near the co
      ast of Yorkshire not far from Whitby where a town is calle
      d Cloughton; and in Westmoreland County the Clough River fl
      ows into the Luna above Lancaster. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
